The relationship between asymptomatic urethral infection and seminal white blood cells, as detected using the peroxidase enzyme system, was examined. Eighty-four semen donors were tested. Twenty-four (29%) were diagnosed as having an active urethral genital infection. There was no statistical relationship between the total number of concentrations of peroxidase-positive cells and a urethral genital infection. Further studies should concentrate on the subtypes of seminal leucocytes and their surface receptors using monoclonal antibodies.
